Seattle Seahawks: A Super Bowl Victory That Got Away

Written By: Rex Solano - Mar• 05•15

When a football player of Marshawn Lynch’s caliber talked and griped about how he was deprived of the last play call orchestrated by Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, we as football fans can only commiserates with Marshawn Lynch’s discomforting thoughts. In an interview with the Turkish Television Network, he was still reeling at that last offensive play. ” You know, MVP of the Super Bowl, that’s pretty much the face of the nation at that point of time.” Although Super Bowl XLIX was long gone for over a month now, football fans are still talking about it. The way the game had ended circumvented the perplexity of a football fan’s frustration and disappointment especially the die-hard Seattle Seahawks fans. It was so closed, a yard away with 26 seconds showing on the game clock. It was one of the most exciting and enervating drama that any football fans could hold in their hearts. For myself I was too edgy, unable to control that scintillating euphoria of how grandiose and spectacular would it be to hand the ball to Marshawn Lynch and scampered to the end zone for a touchdown. That was what I thought. That was what everybody thought in the University of Phoenix stadium, expecting Coach Pete Carroll to design a play call for Lynch to run the ball. As the Seahawks called time out, a remarkable and unbelievable catch by Seahawks receiver Jermaine Kearse was shown on the tube and at one time focus on Patriot QB Tom Brady forlorn face, showing a picture of dejection, an admission that a defeat to Seattle Seahawks was imminent, inevitably an ending season for them and a penultimate heartbreak for New England as the Patriots were leading until that last 26 seconds of the game, where a touchdown score by the Seahawks would have seal their fate.

That last 26 seconds of the game was like an eternal drumbeat of the hearts, reminding me of an inmate on the death row awaiting his time to be executed with a lethal injection. I admit I was so restless. As a Seattle Seahawks fan, nothing would convinced me that in a three down territory, the Seahawks would faltered and disappointingly would have also failed me. But I was wrong. Presumably, what I was expecting for the play to happen do not come in the same page with what coach Pete Carroll laconically drawn. It was a passed and I held my breath for a moment. I was worried about the interception and true to my gut feeling Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson threw the ball right through the hand of rookie cornerback Malcolm Butler. The intended wide receiver Ricardo Lockette was not even closed to the ball to make a play. After that interception, a lot of speculative conjectural theory or even conspiracy theory came out flying, that the Seattle Seahawks did not like to hand the ball to Marshawn Lynch because if the Seahawks emerged victorious, the Super Bowl MVP will be given to him. And at time of his impending free agent status, his agent will command higher fees. But for me, I don’t buy nor believe all those shenanigan rumors or even accusation that the Seahawks were trying to sabotage the great performances of Marshawn Lynch.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was just second guessing everyone watching the game. He was trying to show to the football world that he is a genius. He like to change the play call abandoning the running game and instead gamble of throwing the ball to defy the anticipation of so many that the ball is not to be handed to Marshawn Lynch. That play call backfire on coach Pete Carroll and for that worst call in the history of football, he was crucified, criticized and ostracized to what would be a lifetime lapses of judgment and memories of a blunder decision that will carve a lingering scars needing a healing mentality for him to recover in time for the opening of a new football season.
